    MBT Arjun always had these two sights. This proves that the designers of Arjun were ahead of their times. In fact Arjun can network with other Arjun tanks which T-90MS can't.

    This was bound to happen to these filtered down Russian Monkey tanks...........Shameful to say the least. If we are so hell bent on buying, "foreign maal" , we must go in for the Merkava. They are ideally suited for the terrain we will be operating them in. Additionally Israeli are more reliable and will provide us cutting edge technologies. On the other hand we would be directly dealing with the OEM and therefore any future developments or India specific modifications can be done real time. Rather than going through an intermediatory such as Rosebornexport.

    The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Chairman S Christopher today said necessary modifications have been made to the advanced version of the indigenous Arjun Mark II main battle tank as recommended by the Army.

    The DRDO chairman expressed confidence that the tank will be accepted by the Army.

    The Army had asked for 93 improvements to the tank which includes the capability of firing the anti-tank LAHAT missile, laser protection suite and improved armoured protection for the vehicle.

    "We have done the modifications... it will go through the trials and there is a possibility that Arjun MK II (battle tank) will be accepted by Army and two regiments have already agreed to induct the tanks," said DRDO Chairman, while talking to reporters here.

    Christopher was here to inaugurate POINTS 21 Batch of Post Induction Training School program for newly inducted DRDO scientists at the Defence Institute of Advanced Technology here.

    As per DRDO, Arjun Mark II can fire missiles, has advanced explosive reactive armour panels, mine plough, automatic target tracking, advanced land navigation system, digital control harness and advanced commander panoramic sight among other features.

    Arjun will have a better gun barrel with an equivalent firing charge (strength of the barrel to sustain firing) of 500 rounds against the T 72's 250 rounds.

    The Chennai-based Combat Vehicle Research and Development Establishment has designed the Mark II version of MBT at its facility there.

    The indigenous missile is under trials and would be able to meet the army’s requirement of engaging targets at ranges less than 1,200 metres.

    India’s homegrown Arjun Mk-2 tanks may finally get missile firing capability next year.

    The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) will be ready with a new indigenous missile that can be fired from the tank, a top government official told Hindustan Times on Saturday. The upgrade of Arjun Mk-2 tank suffered a major setback in 2013 after the Israeli missile to be fitted on it failed to meet the army’s requirements, delaying the programme by several years.

    The indigenous missile is under trials and would be able to meet the army’s requirement of engaging targets at ranges less than 1,200 metres.

    The army rejected the Israeli LAHAT (laser homing anti tank) missile, manufactured by the Israeli Aerospace Industries, because it could engage targets only at ranges beyond 1,500 metres. The LAHAT missiles tested by the army and the DRDO cost nearly Rs 20 crore, an expenditure dubbed unfruitful by the national auditor in a recent report.

    The army initially wanted a missile that could engage targets between 500 metres and 5km, but later revised the requirement to 1,200 metres and 5 km.

    Missile firing capability is one of the most significant upgrades proposed in the tank. The defence ministry cleared the purchase of 118 Arjun Mk-2 tanks at a cost of more than Rs 6,600 crore in 2014.

    The DRDO-developed tank is an upgraded version of the Mk-1 variant, 119 of which have been inducted in the army. The Mk-2 variant is supposed to have nearly 80 improved features over the previous version, including more than 15 major technology upgrades.

    The major improvements on the new tank include better firepower, integrated explosive reactive armour, advanced laser warning and countermeasure system, a mine plough, a remotely-operable anti-aircraft weapon, advanced land navigation system and enhanced night vision capabilities.

    The army raised its maiden armoured regiment equipped with Arjun Mk-1 tanks in May 2009, more than 35 years after the project was conceived.
